1972/73 Gurian JM Restoration
Factory fresh hard shell case is included at no additional cost.
Shipping reduced by $30 for PA, VA, DE, NJ and MD residents
Back was removed, two lower top braces replaced.
Neck is excellent. Action is Low-E 4/64" and High-E 3/64" at the 12th fret.
Structurally speaking, this is in excellent condition after our comprehensive restoration. There were side cracks
and one is visible, but all are now completely stable. We could not re-align one crack because a previous tech
used Titebond III which is water proof and highly resistant to steam. All cracks are substantially braced.
Neck was reset.
Exceptional sound. Tone quality on this 48 year old Gurian is absolutely lovely. All around balanced with
nice ringing harmonics and good low frequency tones. You will not be disappointed.
Bracing is all original except for two replaces lower bout braces. These are identical to the original braces.

- Our restoration resulted in a better than very good condition guitar, structurally speaking.
- Top had one crack below the bridge. This is repaired. By the sound hole there was a bad bashed in area. This is repaired and substantially braced.
- There is a 10 inch crack on both sides. Because we remove the back, it is easy to very substantially repair all cracks. I can’t brag about the finish work over the crack
but I can brag about or crack repair work. Very substantial.
- All surfaces are refinished.
- Action is excellent, playability is excellent.
- Because the guitar is in such good condition, a two year structural warranty is included. Please see our warranty statement.
- Seems like most sellers just want to dump a guitar off on you. We want satisfied customers and happy feedback.
